What you are trying to do is pretty simple and can be configured using Anaconda's (the installer's) partitioning tool.

Just make sure you select all drives in the first step. Then, use an LVM setup. It allows you to simply place /, /boot and swap on the SSD (say sda), and have one volume that spans over the other two HDDS (sdb and sdc) and that will be mounted to /home. Piece of cake with Anaconda and LVM setup.

EDIT: As a suggestion, if you got a modern machine with 30GB of free disk space, just fire up a virtual machine (In Gnome Boxes, VirtualBox or whatever) with two 15GB virtual hard drives and test that scenario.

3.) Use the modify (devices) button for /boot and create another Volume Group (modify) to have /home in a different volume group than /

And when defining your volume group for /home, you can select which physical volumes should be used for that group. In your case mark the two HDD, or even the SSD to use the remaining space there.
